Have you been checked for cataracts? Blurry vision can be caused by all sorts of things. My first call would be to an ophthalmologist for a check.

But.....you're probably just old and worn out😁

Do you close your left eye when you’re about to pull the trigger or keep it open ? I’m the same as you including the astigmatism but keep both eyes open.

I have had slight astigmatism in both eyes for about 25 years, I never felt that it affected my shooting although we'll never know for sure. I am using glasses these days because my long distant vision is getting a bit fuzzy, the glasses also correct the astigmatism. I can shoot with or without the glasses and the scores are similar but I feel happier WITH a nice crisp sight picture.
